Congratulations to all our 2020 graduates!

This is a special message to all graduates this year from the Department of Chemistry. 2020 will be a year we all remember but especially so for each of you. You are marking a tremendous achievement, your graduation, and all of us in Chemistry couldn’t be more proud, of all you have done, and of all the promise for what you will do.

Although your time as a student is done, your life as an alumna or alumnus is just beginning and we hope your time at Waterloo, and in Chemistry, will be forever treasured in your memories. 

Remember that whatever you do and wherever you go from here, you are always part of our department and our institution - you are always welcome back on campus.
